‘CSI’ Searches For Fishburne’s Replacement

As CSI Files previously reported, Laurence Fishburne (Dr Ray Langston) decided not to renew his contract with CSI: Crime Scene Investigation for the show’s upcoming twelfth season. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer told Zap2It that the hunt is on for an actor who can take Fishburne’s place on the crime drama. “We’re kicking around a whole bunch of ideas,” he explained. “Hopefully, we’ll come up with somebody who will keep the show on for quite a bit longer.”

All three CSI series were renewed for the 2011-2012 season, and Bruckheimer is happy that the shows will remain on the schedule. “We’re very fortunate that they still have wide audiences,” he said, “and that CBS is still excited about putting them on the air.”
